Foster Focus
What role can youth voices play in improving foster care outcomes? “A big one,” affirms Luke Rodgers, Founder of Foster Focus in the United Kingdom. The youth-led social enterprise trains former foster youth to advise teachers, social workers, policymakers, funders, business leaders, and others on how to improve the foster care system. The result? Youth gain advocacy and public speaking skills, while contributing to improvements in foster care placement, service delivery, education, employability, and policy-making.
